I say that with confidence, not arrogance. "'We want to be somebody, we want to be big, '" Combs said. And we learned how to survive. She had three jobs and she never stopped. But God gave me the strength to keep stepping, and to keep my head up regardless of what anybody thought about me, regardless of what was being said about me, regardless of who hated me or who didn't. Blige's longtime friend and mentor, rap mogul Sean Combs, joined the unveiling.
